India Ki Khoj Trip

"" Try it," I said to Tara.

" What is it?" She said as she suspiciously looked at the piece of Indian streetfood I was handing her

" Try it, it's Indian!" Everyone on the table burst out in laughter and it became our slogan for the rest of the trip. An inside joke of sorts. I think it captures well the overall theme of India Ki Khoj.

To completely immerse ourselves in an unfamiliar culture, and not being afraid to try something new. This picture is from that night, when the IIT students took us to a night market for fun. They were our guides and our translators, but most importantly they were our friends."

India Ki Khoj Trip

"To my surprise, we became friends with the IIT students in no time. Rahul, Varad and Pratyush soon became my best buddies for the trip and we developed a friendship that will last a lifetime. As we ate Indian junk food and drank tea from street stalls together, we realized that though we came from different sides of the globe, we really wern't that much different from each other."
